of writing a new contract with america, and amid new worries about iran's nuclear ambitions we willle ask the sunday group if tough sanctions can prevent the rogue nation from making the buy. all right now on "fox news sunday." hello again from fox news in washington and happy easter. of thousands of the faithful gathered at the vatican for easter services despite a light rain and new allegations the catholic church covered up charges of sex abuse by the clergy. pope benedict made no mention of the scandal in his easter message but one cardinal praised him as a courageous leader and dismissed the allegations at "petty gossip." here on capitol hill the talk is about what is next in the wake of the long bat the over healthcare reform. joining us to discuss that are two senate leaders. and from philadelphia, democrat arlen specter. the unemployment numbers from march came out on friday and present a mixed picture i think it is fair to say. 162,000 jobs were created, the most in three years but unemployment stayed at 9.7%. senator kyl, will republicans support more economic stimulus such as m
tonight, they are older, they are whiter than america, and they eastern more money and are better educated. that's right. the tea party is made up of elite, well-off intellectuals of sorts who are out of step with the real america, and they are very deeply confused. 84% of them think their movement reflects the view of most americans, but 73% of them are conservative, while only 35% of the real america is. 92% wants smaller government with fewer services, which only 50% of the real america want. 39% of real america correctly blames president bush for most of the deficit. 6% of tea partiers do. half of the real america wants government spending to create jobs, which only 17% of tea partiers want. and while only 19% of the real america call themselves angry at washington, more than half of tea partiers do. which brings us neatly to today's tea party rally on the capitol. >> hey, you look happy to me. you don't look angry. that's because you get it. and you are smart enough to get off your couch and do something about it. so this november, what do you say? let's take back our country. how man

to be the rigid ideologue that he is. why would america expect anything other than than an extreme justice? would you want the republicans, if he appoints a radical left winger to oppose -- >> absolutely we will be engaged very closely, very effectively in this debate. this is an opportunity to change the direction of the court. i know a lot of folks want to lay this off, you are going to replace a liberal with a liberal that is not the idea this is the difference between a court that is going to focus on the rule of law and working that way or activist court that is going to try to legislate from the bench. the rnc will be prepared to fight any effort to put a left leaning activist judge on this court. >> sean: i think the crowd is happy about that. [ cheering ] >> sean: bart stupak -- by the way, i'm not going to pat myself on the back. i said from the beginning he would cave. i knew he would give in just as nelson was bought off. do you think he's afraid to run in this reelection? >> absolutely. because of these folks right here.

be said of fellow component bank of america. this has been marching right towards $20 where it hasn't been also since november 2008. both these companies were filled by the same sort, of that financial crisis. bank of america said to report before the bell, as well. we're looking for around 7:00 this morning for those numbers to come out. revenues of nearly $28 billion. and the shares, as we mentioned, they've been on a run, really pushing higher, up about 5% this week alone. coming up at 7:15 eastern time, we've got bank of america ceo brian noin na hamoynihan. because bank of america is the nation's largest bank, it tas talk to one of every two consumers. >> you're not doing business with bank of america? >> they bought my mortgage. >> but you don't -- that's not your bank? >> it's not where i have my deposits, but they own my mortgage, so i am doing business with them. >> well, then it's two out of two. >> but there's two other people at the table. maybe they have it. >> do you have bank of america? >> i think it's not bank of america. still, i have no deposits there and i don't know if

, this is going to -- i think that's what you are seeing in the streets of america today, we are trying to keep up with this runaway spending and we can never do that there's not enough rich people out there not even enough middle income people to keep up with it. >> sean: we start confiscating 70 to 91% we are still overspending in terms of what the government is spending. i've tried to make a case for a long time i think this was just find. they released the president and vice president's tax returns today.ç i'll give the president some credit, which might surprise some people. he gave away the nobel prize which he didn't deserve. he makes 5 1/2 million dollars about 6% of what makes he gave over to charity, fair enough. i make the case that liberals are only generous with other peopl[#íovjjáty how does joe biden get away with only giving away $48920 to charity? that doesn't seem impressive. >> i don't know. i don't mind so much what joe does with his own money as whp he does with mine. >> sean: that's a good line. >> people ought to give to charity, you know however they feel. some people g
have voiced in some variation over the last few weeks. it appears to be a shift in america's view of the israeli/palestinian conflict, casting it as a national security issue directly for the united states. and the new approach comes amid talk of a new obama peace plan for the middle east. joining me to talk about all of this are rashid khalidi, professor of arab studies at columbia university, and bret stephens, foreign affairs columnist for the "wall street journal" and a frequent guest here. so what petraeus seems to be saying, i'm out there talking to these arab leaders, it hurts our relationship with them and makes it more difficult for them to ally with us, they all complain about this. so he's sort of reflecting that ground reality, no? >> i think there's some element of truth to that and it's certainly convenient for our political leaders to make the case that discontent in their country has to do with what settlements israel might be building in parts of jerusalem as opposed to saying their own policies, the oppression of the egyptians, of course they're going to blame is
charities and many people around the world are going to benefit. children's health funds, feeding america, malaria no more, save the children and the united nations foundation. you want more information? go to cnn.com/larryking. how did this idea start, ryan? >> i think it was simon fuller's idea who created "american idol." we've done this now, this is our third time now doing the show. it's raised over $140 million for different charities in the u.s. and around the world, which i believe is more than any other television event. >> larry: how does it work, randy? >> basically we all go out to different areas and the charities we support with the show. the last year, we didn't do one because we felt it wasn't really right with the economy being where it was. so this year we brought it back. i think we're happy we brought it back. >> larry: you go and visit the people you help? >> i went down to mississippi and you saw kara in africa. simon went to arizona. >> i went to monrovia to the food bank to of feeding america. >> i went to seattle to talk with melinda and bill gates about what they

think right now with all of those people with spring break around the world and also here in america, we going to probably see that many people will be stranded over there not for five or six more days but maybe up to 10 to 14 days and depending -- here is the thing. i had a kid stuck in prague. send money western union to your kids, especially the college kids, they ran out of money. >> thank you very much. coming up work monday's 15th anniversary of the horrible oklahoma city bombings commentators like bill clinton are expressing concern that the anti-obama rage prevalent over some parts of the country could spur violence. also, the probe of the banksoco that helped bankrupt america, after this. unless taken with food. he recommended citracal. it's different -- it's calcium citrate, so it can be absorbed with or without food. citracal. since you opened your design firm... ... your presentation didn't. so here's your moment of truth. which 3g network do you trust to email the file, get it printed, and have it waiting upstairs ? when you want your 3g network to work, you want verizon. vi
play is serving only to muddy the waters furnished in an effort to keep america safe. which is what we are all supposed to be about. i personally thought that the bush phrase global war on terror was way too veiling. early -- too vague. team obama made it less precise to overseas contingencies operations. i love that now they have changed the name again this time to countering violent extremism. or cve. when a nigerian tried to blow up a plane over detroit last december it was appropriate to call him violent extremist. fort hood homegrown violent extremist. how about that chech neon suicide bomber. what is the one common denominator with all these cases? are we even allowed to ask that question? and then the most important question of all, does retiring the phrase islamic radicalism actually help keep america safer? look, president obama is right about one thing, this is not a war that's going to be won by military might alone. we will need to use every tool at our disposal. president obama should do more to call on all peace-loving muslims to rise up against the ruthless radicals to i
there landing at cape canaveral, florida, earlier today, there to outline his vision for america's space program and it is controversial. we'll get to the details in a second. first, let's reflect, what has nasa, americans in space, meant for you? let's take a peek here. we have better aircraft engines because of the space program, flame resistant materials developed because of our need to fly in space, radiation detection improved, enriched baby food, that's important, digital imaging for breast biopsies, something critical there, better brake lining for our cars. and let's not forget about the tang. let's going to magic wall and look at president's proposals. the president is proposing major, major changes in space. let's look at some of them. here is one thing the president says -- doesn't want to work for me. here we go. some of his proposed changes. spend an additional $6 billion over the next six year, invest in deep space exploration and bring about a multibillion dollar renovation of the kennedy space center. by taking these things out of nasa, we may lose the lead in space, have big nas
is required now of all americans to keep america safe. listen. >> in big ways and small, resilience is a pillar of our security and there has never been a better example of that than right here in oklahoma city. >> reporter: a lot of folks are trying to still come to grips with why all of this happened. there have been a lot of discussions over the past week or so prompted by former president bill clinton's feeling about the political mood in this country, a similar mood that he says preceded this particular bombing. of course, timothy mcveigh said that the catalyst for his thinking that led to this tragedy was the april 19th, 1993 siege on the branch davidian compound in waco, texas. but however this ended, a lot of folks here want to remember the folks who gave their lives really in service to their country, tamron. >> thank you, ron mott. on this anniversary of the oklahoma city bombing we turn to the rising tide of antigovernment extremism. the southern poverty law center, which tracks antigovernment groups, say the number of so-called patriot groups across the country mushroome

capitalism and put america back on top and also ut biz editor with economists and one of the smartest journalists around. thank you for joining us. appreciate it. straight to it. give me the directions to the road from ruin. >> the book is really about our capitalism failed. had lehman brothers went bust and the rest of the financial system went into meltdown, that was clear evidence that we couldn't carry on as before. capitalism was not supposed to involve the government coming in and bailing out all the bankers. so in the book we set out an agenda for reforming capitalism so that it can actually work better and serve the public rather than serve a small group of people on wall street and set out a number of idea, the, some in of the current reforms pushing, others are not. more fundamental. >> what of the president's reforms do you agree with and in your road map first? >> one of the ideas i like, set up a consumer protection agency. i wish it wasn't being set up with the federal reserve, but as an independent agency. >> why? >> because i think the banking industry did exploit the

that any of this is working? how is america safer today because we call this encountering violent extremism instead of islamic radicalism. >> what makes america safe is when the rest of the world does not trust us and they think we are at war with islam. if you are islamic nation you are not going to work with the united states on the level that we need to. obama is trying to reset that relationship. it's going to take time and not happen overnight. >> laura: lawyer we hear that about a lot of things it's not going to happen overnight. >> a lot of tough problems out there. no one expects. >> laura: talks going better because of this? >> this is a direct outreach to the muslim community around the world. >> laura: at some point you need a report card, nancy. >> want them to stop financing terrorism. safe haven. work with -- not against iraq. >> laura: obama administration's goal is to reach out, work with more people to try to tamp down and defeat this type of extremism. at some point -- you have to stop with the bush bashing because it's getting really old and tedious to a lot of people and
of america. i'm not sure that achieves that goal. that means restoration of the wall between traditional banking and investment and all the reckless stuff that we know has been going on. >> greta: are you talking about goldman sachs that type of institution? >> those institutions that are engaged in traditional banking, community banks, those portions of goldman sachs and morgan and all those who are in traditional, home loans, loan businesses, fine with me if we back it with federal taxpayers' money in the for of the fdic. but the people that engage in all these other activities, derivatives and all those things no taxpayer dollars should ever be at risk. >> greta: what about an outside agency as the president has proposed to be a watchdog. is that fruitful or do we -- one of the gripes i've had first we should look within the government to see whether or not we don't have government entities that can do that what is your view on create ago outside agency or looking within our own government to see whether we have the ability and we just dropped the ball. >> i'm always nervous about cre
, these are international travel, but this is both are countries very connected to america. it's more than a u.s.-led effort. it is a u.s. effort with assistance from around the world. particularly, the mexicans really fear, last year was h1n1. this year, it's the drug war. that there really is unease among the americans, which is the tourist, which feeds the tourist dollars into the country, so this visit is very helpful just simply by showing that the first lady has no problem going to mexico and you shouldn't either. >> and the message out of the summit, here we are, all of these countries getting together with president obama. what has really been accomplished, chuck? >> i think historically, he's brought 46 world leaders here. it was supposed to be 47 and netanyahu decided not to come. >> it's the first time since 1945. >> bringing attention to nuclear terrorism. i think they seem to struggle to get the focus. they didn't -- when you hold a summit like this, your job is to sell it. up until yesterday, they were struggle to get a focus. getting john brennan out there and talking about nuclear terrorism
. and everybody in america knows it is not going to be budget neutral. >> you know, you -- one of the things i think that catches people's ear is radical. is that helpful to the kind of dialogue that should be in politics? is it helpful to republicans who still fight the image of being kind of mane old white guys? >> did you know, my life in politics, i always told people to speak testimony prattly and act boldly. i don't -- radical is not a term that i use very often to describe anything. but there's no questions, as a matter of fact, that the policies being pursued by the obama administration are the farthest left -- it has been a gigantic lurch to the left. i think that's what speaker gingrich was trying to convey. the words i would use are -- the most left wing. because that's what the truth is. >> let me ask you about something else in -- the kind of tone politics. governor mcdonnell designated april as confederate month. something his two democratic predecessors refrained from doing. caused quite a stir. particularly because the governor did not even mention slavery in this proclamation.
and pat toomie. >> and america's back, is america back or is someone cheerleading for a very friendly administration? >> congratulations on your book. >> thanks, judge. if you do the crime, it could be on your license for the end of time. why one state wants drug offenders to have labels on their driver's licenses. >> some are too scared to report it. we're not scared. i am a little. gretchen isn't. >> we're back at 53 minutes after the hour. a lawmaker's proposal to tackle drug abuse is stirring major controversy in the state of louisiana. they're proposing that the driver's license of two time felons bear a label that says drug offender if they've been convicted of a drug offense but is this the scarlet letter for addicts, former addicts and former dealers who have done their time? our guest this morning. louisiana representative ricky hardy who proposed the legislation and on the other side, dr. ken roy who runs the addiction recovery resources of new orleans and is a recovering addict himself. representative hardy, is this a good law or does this affect people's civil rights in
on the coal industry. he's also the author of "big coal, the dirty secret behind america's energy future." thanks for joining me. what can you tell us about the people of the company that own this mine? we're looking at information coming in. 57 citations in a month? is that normal? >> yeah. well, no, it's not normal. and massey energy has a long history of safety violations. both in underground mines and in other kinds of violations in their larger surface mines also. they're really one of the most kind of notorious coal operators in. >> after sago, we thought things were going to get better. have they not? >> well, you know, there have been some modest improvements since the sago mine explosion and tragedy of a few years ago. then, of course, we had the utah mine tragedy. and every time there's lengthy investigations, and every time there's lots of recommendations. and every time those recommendations are put off, watered down and they're just not as tough as they should be. >> are they not as tough because the coal mines industry is very powerful and those who support it especially in

. this was the most significant news of the weekend. the secretary of defense saying the united states of america does not have a long-range plan for dealing with iran. and the second i read that, i didn't think, oh, my gosh, the obama administration has fouled this up. i thought, oh, my gosh, the united states of america has not over the past decade between two administrations figured out how to deal with this very troublesome regime. jon meacham, five years ago, the wall street journal, five years ago, "the wall street journal" was writing blistering editorials attacking the bush administration for allowing iran, and we talked about it repeatedly, step over one line in the sand after another line in the sand. gates was talking about, of course, where they are right now, but he was talking as well, i think, about how the bush administration was unable to contain iran's nuclear ambitions. >> both those points are really important because the cold war -- the post-cold war proliferation story is like the cold war in that it doesn't pay a whole hell of a lot of attention to inauguration dates. gates serv
troubling. >> well, they're generally troubling, mika, because the united states of america, after nine years in afghanistan, after two commanders in chief, still have no exit strategy. now, of course, the things we were supposed to have learned from vietnam and the beirut tragedy was you never go into war until you have an exit strategy. the only semblance of an exit strategy, mort zuckerman, that we have is that we will stay there, and young americans will continue to die. and american taxpayers will continue to spend billions and billions of dollars a year. so we can prop up the government of hamid karzai. hamid karzai. that -- this man, who is contemplating joining the taliban -- which, by the way, i say let him do it. they've got a 10% approval rating anyway in afghanistan. he is our exit strategy. so if you're a mother or a father or a wife or a husband whose loved one is in afghanistan right now going out on patrol with the possibility of being injured for life or killed, you're doing it for a man who says he's thinking about joining the taliban. >> well, i don't think i would de
view now. peter galbraith, one of america's most distinguished diplomats over the years has decided that working with karzai is impossible, and draws some very striking conclusions on america's mission in afghanistan, and on karzai himself. >> one of the explanation, based on what sources inside the palace have said, is that he is -- that he may be using drugs. this behavior is very strange. >> what you have heard within the palace does it speak of particular drugs? >> well, hashish use and marijuana is common in afghanistan. >> after that the editor of "time" magazine, a pulitzer price-winning historian and a new columnist for the "new york times." you won't want to miss any of this. let's get started. >>> peter galbraith has served for many years as an american diplomat and has had a dramatic impact on american policy. in croatia, as ambassador, he sounded the alarm that led to u.s. military involvement in the balkans. as a private citizen, he helped the kurds carve out an autonomous republic within iraq. his most recent posting was to afghanistan, where he was sent by u.n. secret
%. trish, over to you. >>> jpmorgan chief jamie dimon speaking out. bank of america, wells fargo, take a look, all trading up. jpmorgan chase really leading the pack. they're up better than 1%. excuse me, citigroup up 2%. mary thompson joins us with more on dimon's pretty strong words. >> this, of course, comes from the annual letter to shareholders and if you heard jamie dimon speak at the company's annual meeting all these words have a familiar ring. as he has for about the last year and a half, he defends his bank saying it and other healthy firms shouldn't be lumped in with other unhealthy banks. he encourages cooperation that it is necessary to avoid making the mistakes that lead to the financial crisis to avoid making those mistakes again. dimon uses a 36-page letter to point out in the current political environment, size has been demonized, writing capping the size of america's largest banks won't change the needs of big business and there aren't big u.s. banks to serve them, he warns these companies are going to turn to foreign banks. he also calls for a time-out saying we have
look at the american expresss and the bank of americas and there are weak spots in all of the financials. i want to point out deutsche bank which is another big player in the cdo space, and noticeable how much weak than the rest of the market, and goldman and citigroup down as well. and looking at the materials first. >> and some of the issues to stop you there, some of the traders i talked to theday said they question whether or not this is the tip of the iceberg, and that why you are seeing additional sell-off within some of the other big financial names. i mean, who knows at this point. >> we don't. but remember, there were not a lot of enormous players in this cdo space. there were several big names involved and we saw two of them that moved to the downside aggressively. i wanted to note that the materials were weak because the commodities fell apart at the same time and never really recovered here. again, this whole political part of this, and i can't emphasize this enough, it was a major issue on the street. the president came out and said that people who don't su

, obviously the biggest problem facing the economy here in america. you're the former labor secretary. what should the government be doing right now to help businesses create those new jobs we're looking for? >> well, small businesses are the major creator of jobs in america. they are having a hard time getting credit. one thing the government can do is simply to help the banks, regional banks, smaller banks, the sort that small businesses use to get credit to those small businesses more efficiently and quickly. also, it is very important that state and local governments get aid. they are right now as you know, they are hemorrhaging jobs cutting everything from teachers to firefighters and that has a negative multiplier effect. over this year and next year it's expected states will be cutting or raising taxes to the tune of $250 billion, a major fiscal drag on this economy and the fed ought to help out at least with say a temporary low interest or no interest loans to the states until the states can pay them back. >> what about tax day coming up next week. a day most americans dread. there'
, america does not need to reform wall street. president obama today took on two of the story lines republicans have advanced about the democratic bills, sometimes even before the bills were written. first the republican claim that the senate bill includes future bailouts for the banks, encouraging them to take more risks. in fact, the bill forces the banks to create a fund that would be used for liquidating banks. >> what's not legitimate is to suggest that somehow the legislation being proposed is going to encourage future taxpayer bailouts, as some have claimed. that makes for a good sound bite, but it's not factually accurate. it is not true. in fact, the system as it stands -- [ applause ] the system as it stands is what led to a series of massive costly taxpayer bailouts, and it's only with reform that we can avoid a similar outcome in the future. in other words, a vote for reform is a vote to put a stop to taxpayer-funded bailouts. that's the truth. >> president obama also addressed the other republican argument, a perennial, that creating new regulations to replace the ones

than a decade ago is that they are so much cozier with corporate america today than they were a decade ago. and much more so than they let on in public. i think it's amazing and breath taking that greg greg, top lawyer, champion of the left, top lawyer in the obama white house before he was forced out in the champion of the left is now the sherpa for goldman sachs, or that dick gephardt, the leader of house democrats, the last event i saw him at was in iowa where he had all these union members around him rocking to ac/dc drinking beer because he was a champion of the labor movement. now he's out there advising goldman sachs. you see this across the board for the democratic party where they get so much money from wall street and so much money from corporate america that it makes it harder to paint republicans as being in the hip pocket of business. and i think that -- >> okay. >> -- that's covering the backdrop of the debate. >> i said something moderately nice about barack obama. i'm going to try another one. >> oh, good. this will be a good day. >> all right, here we go. since barack
